One of President Obamas most ardent liberal supporters has defected from Obamacare.
We will be encouraging a waiver, Polis told Health Policy Solutions in a story that ran today. It will be difficult for Summit County residents to become insured. For the vast majority, its too high a price to pay.
Polis also wrote to Colorados insurance commissioner asking why an average 40-year-old mountaintop resident would have to fork over $427.80 a month while counterparts in Denver would pay $296.41 for the same plan.
People take one look at the rates and they walk out the door, said Tamara Drangstveit, executive director of the Family and Intercultural Resource Center,
Polis,,,another racist, cross burning, anarchist traitor.
I agree, but I am also ashamed to say I am in his district. SO MANY Californians moved here I am seriously considering moving to WY.
If all it takes is for your Congressman to apply for an exemption, I’d say the line forms on the right.
Healthcare at government gunpoint will not be pretty. If this dipstick gets some splashback then it surely is deserved.
I have 2 friends who live on the same street - but the county line runs right down the middle of the street. They have basically the same types of histories [health, occupation, etc.] and are the same age.
They decided to check into identical plans and found out that one would pay $237 more a month - just because he lives in the other county ...
It’s worse than that for folks who live in pricey counties. Yes, they have nice homes with 3 car garages and new cars, but they’re also up to their earlobes in debt and barely making it. And now along come the Ocare insurance fees.
If America is not relieved of the Ocare elephant, families are going to go under by the hundreds of thousands.
Its too late. You could have had your waiver but you stood with that idiot Pelosi during the shutdown.
Whaddaya mean?? It's the Affordable Health Care Act, you cretin!
So they really do bring their votes with them, hoping for a different result?
Polis is one of the few openly gay people elected to the House as a freshman and the first gay parent in Congress.
Polis is the son of Stephen Schutz and Susan Polis Schutz. He attended the La Jolla Country Day School in San Diego, California and went on to receive his Bachelor of Arts in political science from Princeton University.
Polis along with his parents founded bluemountainarts.com, an online greeting card website, which he sold to Excite@Home three years later in a deal worth $780 million. In 1998, he launched the online florist company ProFlowers that expanded to become Provide Commerce, Inc., acquired in 2006 by Liberty Media Corporation.
Polis is a dummy who will represent the idiots who voted for him well.
